Roof Replacement or Roof Repair? What To Consider When Making the Decision

roof repair

Dealing with roof problems can cause great headaches and stress, but Molandes Roofing is here to help make this process easier. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if you should invest in a new roof, or just simply get repairs done. How do you know when the roof is worth saving? Maybe you will only have peace of mind if the roof is completely replaced. Our team is here to help you make the best decision for your home. Whether you need a roof repair or a replacement, we have you covered.

Roof Factors to Consider

Here are a couple of factors to take into consideration when choosing the best route for your roof and home.

Age of Roof

Do you know when your roof was installed? The age of your roof can tell you if you need to replace it or not. Although roofs are built to last, they can only last for so long. There are obvious signs of aging, and it’s important to keep an eye out for them. Some of those signs include worn-out shingles, missing granules, and damage around chimneys. Sometimes, it’s better to invest in a new roof than to waste money on trying to repair a roof that is past saving.

Roof Leaks

One of the most common problems a homeowner faces are roof leaks. If you’ve noticed water stains on your walls or your ceilings, or your wallpaper is curling up, you are most likely dealing with a leaky roof. It can be difficult to find the cause of a leaky roof, which is why you need the experts on your team. 

Depending on how severe the leak is, you might be able to get a roof repair instead of a replacement. However, if the damage is severe and the leaks are big, the only solution might be to replace the entire roof. Our crew at Molandes Roofing will evaluate the roof leaks and choose the best route.

The Extent of Roof Damage

The severity of the roof damage will determine if you need a roof repair or a replacement. There are two main types of damage: aesthetic and structural. 

Aesthetic Roof Damage

If you notice moss, or dark streaks growing on or in between your roof shingles, contact our team today! We can also make roofing materials that looked old and worn out, shine again either through maintenance or a new replacement.

Structural Roof Damage

Structural damage consists of:

  • Missing granules and bald spots on your shingles
  • Cracked or broken shingles
  • Rusted metal shingles
  • Dented roofing materials
  • Curled edges 

Our team will take a look at the roof damage to determine if we can fix the roof with simple repairs. If not, we will come up with an action plan for a new roof replacement.
